Snatch is a covert command used to steal held and carried items, as well as money from a purse, from a target.

## Usage

This command uses the element of surprise and the stealing skill to try to take a carried item or money from a target.

• This target can try to hold on their belongings with their fighting.unarmed.grappling skill.
• The target and observers will see the use of this command.
snatch <item> from <living> leaving <direction>      Snatch something from someone and make a run for it.


You need to specify an exit to leave after trying to take the item by force. If this exit does not exist you will remain present to be attacked by the victim.

• Whether or not you succeed in taking the item, you can fail to escape.
• You need some covert.hiding.person skills to actually leave after using the command.

You can no longer snatch a shield being worn (held).

## Acquisition

Snatch can be learned at 5 levels of covert.manipulation.stealing from the leader of any thief guild.
